        I agree I finally stopped complaining because it did no good.My only option is to drop AOL. I always thought the squeaky axle got the grease

        Bring back the block words feature. Spammers change email addresses so blocking an address is useless. I've received two KETO spams today with two different addresses.

        What happened to blocking spam mail? Your email is NOT free, I pay for it. You took away the setting to block all email that wasn't in my address book and now my inbox is inundated with garbage! Since we PAY for AOL, perhaps we should begin a class action lawsuit against you for taking settings away. If it was free it would be different, but since I pay and have now for over 20 years, I want better service and I want my spam control settings returned, NOW! I only want email from those I put in my address book!

        If something works don't fix it!!!! Why did you mess with spam controls??? Now all spam mail gets through. I am not going to type in email that I want blocked. It would take me a month of Sundays to do what you ask.
        What you have now is what I used before to block personal email.
        Who ever thought to change spam controls should be fired. Also the ones who approved the change need to be fired too.

        When AOL sees hundreds of emails in the spam folder from the same email address, over several days, how about you start blocking them altogether?

        After all, you ignore user-defined filters that specifically say to move to "recently deleted" folder, and instead keep sending them to the spam folder.
